On birthdays, graduations, weddings or any day of personal or professional celebration, friends and relatives ensure the honored person is adorned with lei on the special day and perhaps even several days afterward.This sign of respect and love also extends to great people of Hawaii’s past, such as Kamehameha the Great.During the Kamehameha Day holiday and celebration each year (around June 11) the statue of Kamehameha the Great in Honolulu’s Capitol District is draped with hundreds of feet of carefully strung lei as a sign of respect and honor for the Hawaiian warrior who, in 1810, united the Hawaiian Islands under one rule.It is also common to present a lei to a friend or relative who is arriving in the Islands — no matter from where or how long they have been away as a hearty welcome.Leis are normally worn around the neck and can be made of tropical flowers (such as the fragrant tuberose or plumeria), maile (green, shiny leaves), or nuts and berries.
